Love this little cafe. Family owned and operated....always see someone I know when I'm there. Awesome BBQs. Great veggies. Nothing bad on the menu. Great home cooking!!!

Three of us had the roast beef on toast. I got a side salad with mine. This salad had a lot of different toppings...not just lettuce and tomato. The price was very reasonable. The service was great also. The server was not dressed up but the attention to detail was there. If you have a entertainment coupon book use the... More

I have lived within 20-25 miles from Central City Cafe all my life but had never stopped there . My husband and I were on a drive and I suggested to eat there because I had watched an episode of Dinners, Drive-ins , and Dives with this restaurant on it. I had a BBQ beef sandwich and my husband had... More

I heard about this restaurant on Triple D and was expecting more. It's not bad but definitely not worth going out of your way. I ordered the meatloaf and I can honestly say that I like my wife's better (which may be more a compliment to her than to a put down on the restaurant). The portion size was alright... More

I guess when I see a place that Triple D has been to I generally have high expectations, as I did with Central City Café. I have been let down by Triple D a couple of times and I think this is another one of those times. Not that CCC is a bad place, its a nice restaurant with good... More

The taste and the quality of the food was better than I had expected but it was also a little pricier than I thought it would be.

Urban spoon ranked it high and it is spot on. Meat loaf (not the singer) and roast beef are great! Enjoyed visiting with the owners son and looking at all the pictures. Neat place and we'll go again if ever in town.

Real atmosphere, 100% Central City. Not open Saturday morning. I always have a good, relaxing time. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for fancy surroundings, fancy serving pieces and fancy prices the Central City Cafe is definitely not for you. But if you want good quality, home-style, home-cooked food and lots of it, then this is the place for you. I personally recommend the pinto beans and cornbread (best cornbread I have eaten). These are cooked just the... More

This is yet another restaurant we saw on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Central City Cafe isn't in a location where I'd normally go looking for a restaurant, nor is it a restaurant that I'd normally seek out when passing though a town. But, then again, it was featured on a DDD episode. And I'm glad I went. The menu is... More
